Newly-opened at Cavan Road near Edith Patisserie and Red Eye Smokehouse is Peranakan Khek — a new takeaway shop that sells Nyonya Kueh and cakes freshly-baked in-house on a daily basis. Tried the Kueh Bengka Ubi which is slightly stiffer but less stickier than what commercial bakeries sell, with a moderately fibrous bite for $2 a slice, as well as a Kueh Salat that comes pretty well-flavoured with a smooth and aptly sweet Pandan Egg Custard layer atop a well-packed layer of glutinous rice that was loosely sticky without turning into a mush — also at a price of $2 a slice. Both Kuehs that I have had seemed to have a good balance of sweetness which makes them easy to finish. Always heartened whenever I visit shops like these that puts effort into keeping traditions alive.

Pernakan Khek is situated at Cavan Suites, 11 Cavan Road, #01-03, Singapore 209848
